cleaning chrome

I have a set of euro bumpers that i want to put on for the 23rd meet. They are in good to very good condition but I'm pretty sure a good cleaning will help them out. How do i go about cleaning/polishing them or does anyone know someone/somewhere I can get it done.

get yourself a can of mother's chrome polish or meguiars equivalent @ Canadian Tire. It does a good job. You have to really work it and break it down though. Use a little and just continue working it untill it's all nearly gone. Then use a different towel to buff it out. Keep repeating until you're satisfied. if you like and want to get exotic, you can get some Zaino or Klasse All-In-One cleaner and clean out the bumper after. Should give you a brilliant shine once you're done. if you need more info PM me. Hope that helps.

I've also used that Mother's mag/aluminum polish, it works, even on household stuff.

Turtle wax also makes a good chrome polish. It made my chrome rims so shiny they almost looked like liquid metal.
